பெந்த கொஸ்தே கும்பல் தமிழ்நாட்டில் நிறைய அலைகிறது.
யாருக்காவது எதாவது நோய் இருந்தால் ஜெபிக்கிறேன் என்று உள்ளே நுழையும்.
அப்போதுமருந்து மாத்திரை எல்லாம் கொடுக்கக்கூடாது என்று பேசாது இந்த கும்பல்.
ஆனால் மருந்து மாத்திரையால் குணமானால், ஆஹா கர்த்தர்தான் உங்களை குணப்படுத்தினார் என்று அள்ளிவிடும்.
பிறகு உள்ளே பெந்தகொஸ்தே கிறிஸ்துவராக ஆனபின்னால், மருந்து மாத்திரையெல்லாம் கொடுக்கக்கூடாது, பிரார்த்தனை பண்ணியே குணம் பண்ணனும் என்று ஆரம்பிக்கும்.
இப்படிப்பட்ட மூளை கழண்ட கும்பல்களிடம் தமிழர்கள் ஜாக்கிரதையாக இருக்கவேண்டும்.
Praying man let his daughter die
Dale Neumann faces up to 25 years in prison
A US jury has found a man guilty of killing his sick 11-year-old daughter by praying for her recovery rather than seeking medical care.
The man, Dale Neumann, told a court in the state of Wisconsin he believed God could heal his daughter.
She died of a treatable disease - undiagnosed diabetes - at home in rural Wisconsin in March last year, as people surrounded her and prayed.
Neumann's wife, Leilani Neumann, was convicted earlier this year.
The couple, who were both convicted of second-degree reckless homicide, face up to 25 years in prison when they are sentenced in October.
A lawyer representing Dale Neumann said he would appeal.
During the trial, medical experts told the court that Neumann's daughter could have survived if she had received treatment, including insulin and fluids, before she stopped breathing.
On Thursday Neumann, who is 47 and studied in the past to be a Pentecostal minister, said he thought God would heal his daughter.
"If I go to the doctor, I am putting the doctor before God," he said. "I am not believing what he said he would do."
He also said he thought his daughter had had flu or a fever, and that he had not realised how ill she was.
Neumann's lawyer said he had been convinced that his "faith healing" was working, and that he had committed no crime.
The prosecution argued that Neumann had minimised his daughter's illness and that he had allowed her to die as a selfish act of faith.
They said the girl should have been taken to hospital because she was unable to walk, talk, eat or drink.
Instead, an ambulance was only called once the girl had stopped breathing.
